Louisville women's basketball picked up a commitment from Seygan Robins of Mercer County on Wednesday morning

Louisville women's basketball head coach Jeff Walz and his staff received an impactful in-state commitment on Wednesday morning.

A rising junior at Mercer County who just finished competing in the Nike EYBL in Nashville, Tenn., Seygan Robins verbally committed to the Cardinals head coach Jeff Walz.

"I've been thinking about for a long time and I've been praying about it," she explained to Cardinal Authority shortly after making her decision public.  "Me and my family talked about it about a week ago for a long time and that's when I decided until after the tournament to actually call him and tell him."

Walz didn't hide his excitement when she shared the news.

"He was real excited," she said. "I haven't been able to tell the rest of the staff yet, but I think we're going to call back later tonight and tell them."

Robins held multiple scholarship offers, but it came down to Louisville and Kentucky, with the relationships built with the Cardinals staff as one of the key factors in her choice.

"It's definitely a combination of things," she said.  "I've always really loved the coaching staff there.  Every time that I go up there it's like a family environment and it just feels like home.  The players are really comforting and inviting.  It's just a really good environment."

Enjoying a brief 10 day break from the summer action before returning the court for an event in Atlanta and then the Nike Nationals, Robins admits there's some relief in having made her college decision.

"It's been hectic, so it's a little bit of a relief."
